Disable Password Reveal Button in Windows 10 Login Screen

The password reveal button in Windows 10 login screen is a useful option to verify if you’re typed the password correctly. However, if you want to disable it for more security, here is a registry edit.

Start Regedit.exe and go to:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\CredUI

Create a DWORD (32-bit) value named DisablePasswordReveal. Double-click DisablePasswordReveal and set its value data to 1



This disables the password reveal button.
